Jordan Amador is a Seer with enough emotional baggage to take down a plane. After murdering an innocent man she is charged by God to aid earthbound souls to cross over to the afterlife to save her immortal soul. She dedicates her life to assisting her charges while wallowing in her own self depravation and seeking answers to her own troubled past. Romance, adventure and action this book seems to offer it all!!!
Kyoko does an amazing job of humanizing angels without taking away from their mystic and grace. I really loved the character development and the realism behind the characters' choices. The way each character grows truly allows you to become fully vested in their fates. I also loved the details Kyoko gives throughout the book such as classic quotes, movie references, and biblical references. This girl did her homework!!!
From start to finish the author kept my attention, the story had mystery, intrigue, humor, love, hope, faith, and the fight between good and evil. I didn't see most of the story before I read what would occur and I really enjoyed that. Ms. Kyoko's story had great character build up Jordan, Michael, Gabriel, and Raph all had strong equal parts.
I loved that Jordan wasn't a wimp and she was able to hold her own on all points of the story from fighting to her search of the truth to find out what happened to her mom.
I don't want to give anything away in this novel because I believe that it is worth the wait to see what will happen as you read this book. I purchased the second novel that tells us what happens with Michael and Jordan between some of the chapters of the Black Parade and I know that I will enjoy reading it as much as I have enjoyed reading Black Parade.
Well done Ms. Kyoko M. and I look forward to reading your next novels if you can live up to the caliber of this novel it was a wonderful read.
The book is really well-written. Not surprised to learn that the author has a bachelor's degree in English literature.
I learned a lot about angels and demons, and the names of the most famous ones, such as Mulciber and Belial. This was all new to me.
My favourite character is Michael, the love interest. He comes across as a true personality and is someone I would like to be friends with, or just have a beer with. He cares about people. My favourite part in the book is when he addresses the main character's cruel aunt with a long speech in such a way that is eloquent and truthful, himself being in an excellent position as an outsider to the decades-long family feud. I practically wanted to cheer. I'm sure a lot of families in our country would cheer at having such an eloquent spokesman to summarize unnecessary tragedy in the family that has long run its course.
I wasn't so sure about Jordan, the main character. Yes, she has had a lot of undeserved tragedy in her life. But I struggled a little to maintain keen interest in her character, given the way she treated everyone, including friends. It seemed a little overdone, perhaps to try hard to set out her character. I did, however, care about what happened to her, and wanted to read about her to the end.
Overall, four stars for a well-written book!
